At Least as Cool as this Nerdy Shirt
DISCLAIMER: FFG SENT ME AN EARLY COPY OF COSMIC ENCOUNTER THAT I DID NOT PAY FOR IN ANY WAY OTHER THAN WRITING ABOUT IT.
Anyway...the good news is that COSMIC is an awesome game no matter who publishes it and I'm very grateful to the fine folks at FFG for the advance copy. I guess I'm worse than Hitler for writing a good review/Games from the Crypt about a free game.
There's some new stuff, a lot of old favorite stuff, and by and large it's a great edition even though I still think the Avalon Hill edition (surprisingly) has better production. But I do think it's ridiculously overpriced at retail considering that it's the same price as ANDROID but features literally 1/5 of the components and no mounted board.
As a bonus- there's a Gameshark Holiday Gift Guide you can take a look at. There's even a board game section, and Abner (sick this week) put in his two cents about a couple of games I didn't write about yet. This T-Shirt is sadly not on there.
